    We have an 8:20 AM appt for BBB @ MK & r staying @ WDW Dolphin Resort. What time should we leave hotel? Also have a 9:05 AM bfast resv @ Hollywood & Vine on Wed & planning to schd Chef Mickey's on Fri in the AM. Would love an est time of depart

    Hi again Melissa!

    Set your alarm early for the 8:20 am appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Plan on leaving your hotel around 7:00 to drive to the Magic Kingdom, park, take the tram to the Ticket and Transportation Center, ride the monorail to the park, enter, and walk to the castle. Since your appointment is before typical park operating hours you will want your confirmation number to enter. Usually turnstiles on the far right are marked for guests to use who have early morning reservations. Main Street, U.S.A. will be practically deserted at this hour. Your early departure from your hotel should allow you time to snap a few pictures in front of Cinderella Castle while there are no crowds.

    Chef Mickey's breakfast is my favorite character meal! Twenty minutes will be plenty of time to drive to Disney's Contemporary Resort from the Walt Disney World Dolphin, park and enter the building. Chef Mickey's is one the fourth floor.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is a only a 10- 15 minute car or boat ride or 20 minute walk away from your hotel. Allow some extra time to enter the park and walk to the restaurant. Leaving by 8:30am will get you to the podium on time. If you go by boat leave your room about 10 minutes earlier in case you have to wait to catch one.

    Enjoy your morning activities!
